A Taliban Prisoner Earns The Right To Pray While We Stand To Lose The Same Right In Pickens County


According to this report (below) at CNN.COM, a Taliban prisoner has won legal right s to pray in prison even though it requires him getting special treatment and disrupts other prisoners.


Meanwhile, in Pickens County, the school board will face the Freedom From Religion Foundation ~ a group from Wisconsin that claims our rights to public prayer are a violation of the first amendment and a violation of the separation of Church and State.


The Freedom From Religion Foundation hints at legal action if the School District fails to take action on the matters before them by the end of January 2013.
“If they decide to continue with prayers then we’d have to examine whether there’s legal action or anything else that would need to be taken.”
